    I don't have any of those breeds, but I do want to make sure you know that quite a few people who buy the Araucana end up getting Easter Eggers. See this thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=114471 so unless you buy from a reputable breeder you could end up with an EE and they can lay ANY color of egg....

    I hope you're outside of town - when I lived there (for 20 years) I learned that I couldn't have chickens.

    If you are in town, I hope your neighbors are cool and won't turn you in [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!!

    Welcome! I just live north of GR by 20 minutes. I have a wheaten pendesenca and she's an awesome layer. She just started molting - the poor thing. I'm in the process of hatching some fav's from pasofinofarms (fellow byc'er). They should start hatching tomorrow evening. Well if you are interested in hatching the breeds you listed there are several people on this forum that have eggs available. Check out the listing - https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=23361
